Desperate to find a network show I might actually enjoy, I tried "Mental." Have the writers, or anyone associated with the show, ever been to a psych unit, or visited anyone in the psych unit, or actually known anyone with a psychiatric disorder? I have! (Will let you guess which one of the three.) On the show, the psychiatrist assigned to one patients spends the entire day with her, strolling about the grounds of the hospital trying to lure patient out of her shell. Are they kidding? In reality, you've got 20 patients lined up to see 1 psychiatrist who blows in at 10 p.m. for 20 minutes, who then throws meds at the patients, hoping against hope that one will work.
Said severely, severely debilitated patient spends the day chatting it up with her family, smiling, laughing, completely normal, while behind the scenes, the staff is trying to decide where to put her away, for good, because she is so out of her mind. Yeah. The only actual clue that she was mentally disturbed was they kind of disheveled her hair a bit. I guess all people with mental problems have messy hair.
Finally, I had one of the cases figured out before the drs. on the show knew where to even begin to look for a clue as to what his problem was.
I just don't like shows that insult my intelligence. This is one of the worst shows I have ever seen as far as insulting the viewer's intelligence.
